About our materials engineering research


ANSTO has capabilities and expertise in the materials engineering space and has played a significant role in maintaining Australia's international profile in the field of nuclear science and technology and enhancing the sustainability and international competitiveness of Australian industry.


Our research touches on a range of areas ranging from developing, manufacturing, characterising, modelling and ultimately, utilising materials in support of the Advanced Nuclear Fuel cycle and next generation power generation systems.

We also undertake a number of other research activities, both sponsored and collaborative, and undertake related projects including National Security Research with a wide range of national and international stakeholders.
